Keith Marting provides our "Comment of the Day"
On Sunday our own Hal McCoy had a bit of a scoop with the news from Reds pitching coach Bryan Price that Johnny Cueto could end up in the bullpen when he returns from a strained lat that has already lead to his being shut down three times in the past year.
The move is intriguing given Cueto's talent, and it speaks well of the job Tony Cingrani has done replacing the Reds' ace in the starting rotation.
It did not impress FSO reader Keith Marting, however, who sees larger problems with the Cincinnati ball club.
"At this point, what difference does it make and who really cares? This team is done, finished, cooked, buried, whatever. It would take a complete collapse by several teams for the Reds to make the post season, Time for football and we'll see what happens next year."
What do you think? Is the 2013 season a lost cause for the Reds, or can they still salvage the campaign? They still had a 4 1/2 game lead over Arizona for the second wild card as of this writing despite losing a weekend series to the Cardinals following a West Coast road trip that started strong but ended with a dud.
